Part 2 of 4: Fault Behavior and Complexities
This section discusses the approaches for understanding faulting and generation of earthquakes. Understanding faulting and earthquake generation is basic first semester physics, in particular understanding forces and friction, elastic behavior of crust and propagation of waves through matter. Understanding earthquakes also requires geologic examination of ancient faults and fault rocks that are now exposed at Earth’s surface.
